The town of Langeskov is primarily located in Rønninge parish and was established following the construction of the railway line between Odense and Nyborg in the 19th century. The town has grown rapidly and its northern part now crosses the old parish border and extends into the parish of Birkende. Until 1 January 2007, it was home of the municipal council of the now former Langeskov municipality.

Langeskov has a model of Preikestolen to commemorate its twin town, Forsand.
